Study Title

A Sub-study of 18F-DCFPyL Positron Emission Tomography / Computed Tomography (PET/CT) for Assessment of Recurrent Prostate Cancer Evaluation of the Safety and Sensitivity of 68Ga-DOTATOC PET/CT for Imaging NET Patients

Study Details


Quantitative parameters obtained with dynamic whole body imaging using positron emission tomography (PET) can provide additional and complementary information to standard PET. Dynamic imaging allows for better understanding of the behavior of the radio-pharmaceutical because it can be followed over time. Thought to be difficult to perform with currently available clinical equipment that can affect the clinical workflow, it has recently shown to be feasible. We want to test the feasibility of this imaging technique and evaluate its utility in identifying lesions with three different radio-pharmaceuticals as compared to standard static PET. This study will also determine the clinical impact of DWB PET on participant management by comparing the overall qualitative assessment performed by nuclear medicine physicians between the standard PET images and the DWB ones.
